HALIFAX -- Nova Scotia is announcing no new cases of COVID-19 on Sunday, and one of the active cases is now considered resolved.

According to the government’s website, Nova Scotia has had 1,092 confirmed cases, 65 deaths, and 1,023 resolved cases – bringing the total number of active cases to four.

Nova Scotia last reported new COVID-19 cases on Saturday, when it announced three new cases in the Central Zone – which includes Halifax.


The province has had 101,075 negative test results since testing began in early March.

There is still one person in hospital in the intensive care unit as a result of COVID-19.

Positive cases in the region range in age from under 10 to over 90.


There are cases confirmed across the province, but most have been identified in the central zone, which contains the Halifax Regional Municipality.

The provincial government says cumulative cases by zone may change as data is updated in Panorama, the province’s electronic information system.

The numbers reflect where a person lives, not where their sample was collected.

  • Western zone: 56 cases
  • Central zone: 914 cases
  • Northern zone: 68 cases
  • Eastern zone: 54 cases


Anyone who experiences a new or worsening fever or cough, or two or more of the following new or worsening symptoms, is encouraged to take an online test or call 811 to determine if they need to be tested for COVID-19.

  • Sore throat
  • Headache
  • Shortness of breath
  • Runny nose/nasal congestion

The provincial state of emergency, which was first declared on March 22, has once again been extended to Oct. 18, unless government terminates or extends it.
